   “If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else.”– Booker T Washington

Have you ever had one of those days you just didn’t feel like you had it in you to deal with all life was throwing at you? You had all you could do to roll out of bed, let alone get the day started. Oh yeah…sounds familiar. It was going to be a “go through the motions” kinda day…auto-pilot.

I remember those days and months after Clyde died feeling nothing. I was living my everyday life but was not engaged in it. I wondered in my head…”wow,,who is that woman over there going about her day?”…and then I’d realize it was me….but not really. I wasn’t the same Kathleen. I wondered if I’d ever feel again and uncover my joy again.

I was blessed with a posse of family and friends that stepped up and “lifted and loved me” back to life. My kids needed me more then ever and they were my reason to get up every morning. My friends just showed up with food, a car to take the kids to baseball or dance or simply sit  with me. My sister Lorrie walked with me as I made decisions, seemed to know just what both kids needed and protected me in many ways as only a sister can.

We all need  strong but gentle hands to hold us up some days and it is a true gift to be able to give back to those that are there for us. No person stands alone in this life. Reach out today to bring love into another person’s  life.
